    The Cove is a quaint little postcard town made up only of old folk who sell the World's Greatest Ice Cream - a secret recipe that brings lots of tourists into town.

    Into The Cove comes Sally Brainerd, daughter of murdered Amory St. John, of Washington, D.C., seeking sanctuary, and FBI Special Agent James Quinlan, who's undercover and after her. He's got a murder to solve, and he believes she's the key. But is she really?

    If you could sum up The Cove in three words, what would they be?

    Quirky, entertaining, funny


    What other book might you compare The Cove to and why?

    This is the first of the author's FBI series and it's a great opener. This is sort of "Psycho" without the mummified mother at the end.


    What about Sandra Burr’s performance did you like?

    The reader kept my interest and dramatized the story without making her reading a play.


    Any additional comments?

    When I first read this story, I didn't like it and didn't thibk it lived up to the second book in the FBI Series, but this second reading brought the story more to life and I appreciated it much much more.

    The sun rides high over the British Empire and the light still sparkles brightly in Amelia Peabody's eye as she returns for her second adventure in archaeology and romantic mystery as recounted in her lively journal, The Curse of the Pharaohs.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Curse of the Pharaohs to be better than the print version?

    The audio version is always different because you hear the characters the way someone else interprets them. The reader for this series is GREAT! I love to read the Amelia Peabody books but listening to them has been a pleasure.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    There are always twists and turns in Ms. Peters' stories and surprises, too. She knows how to keep you involved with the story.


    Which character – as performed by Barbara Rosenblat – was your favorite?

    Barbara Rosenblat is very good as Amelia, but she does a pretty good Ramses, also.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    I have read other books by Elizabeth Peters and I like her style. I read "A Crocodile on the Sandbank" first and went on to read the Vicky Bliss series but I've never gotten all the Amelia Peabody books. I working to fix that shortcoming, now, with Audible Books.

    Story
    (2037)

    The Queen of England has concocted a plan in which penniless aristocrat Lady Georgie is to entertain a Bavarian princess and conveniently place her in the playboy prince's path, in the hopes that he might finally marry.

    But queens never take money into account. Georgie has very little, which is why she moonlights as a maid-in-disguise.

    Coffee Lover says: "More Royal Fun!"
    "This series is light-hearted fun!"

    British, mystery, fun

    Which scene was your favorite?

    Her descriptions of an audience with the Queen.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was very entertained.

    It's a good story and the reader fits with the story.
